Question about 2001 Dodge Neon
Thanks for using FixYa.
It is possible that you don't have any issues with your ignition system. Sounds more like you have a fuel delivery system issue. Have you recently replaced the fuel filter for your Neon? I bet not... Replacing the fuel filter had always been neglected by most people. Your car will not go past 3k RPM with a clogged fuel filter, not enough fuel delivered to the engine = no good RPM...
If in case you have recently replaced the fuel filter. Try checking the fuel pump. Go to the nearest shop and have your fuel pressure checked. Mechanics will know if your fuel system has enough pressure to sustain the engine during higher RPMs...
I hope this helps. Thanks and good day ma'am.

Sorry but your husband will have to accept the fact that this vehicle has a ECU related fault and its limp mode ,this could be caused by something as simple as a light bulb out ,now this vehicle isnt a dodge but a daewoo with a dodge or chevrolet badge so its made in korea which means its built on the same assembly line as the europeon market vehicles ,which means that the europeon models use encrypted software for fault diagnosis so its possible that you have one destined for europe and its ended up in america ,Its also possible the diagnostic plug is under the bonnet and the OBDII socket for the american emmisions test is under the dash .So the only way around this problem is to bite the bullet and take the vehicle to the main dealer who are the only ones who can read the CORRECT diagnostic codes. Trust me on this one you are not the only one who asks questions like this on here and i do have a list of codes but more often than not the codes that are read are not the right ones because of the encryption used for the cars electronics .Worst offenders for this are renault and VW along with BMW and mercedes ,pluig into a new merc and try to do the american emmisions test and the immobilisor cuts in ,dealer only job and then some sneering receptionist charging the earth for releasing the immobilisor saying illegal access to the OBDII and all i tried to do was read the fault codes.
